How much shock do you put in a 3000 gallon pool?
I put 30,000 volts in mine. That'll clean out the pool.
ppm = lbs Chlorine / lbs of water given: 1 ppm = 1 x 10e-6 1 gallon of water = 8.33 lbs 1 lb = 454 grams Therefore; 4x10e-6 = lbs Chlorine/(3000 x 8.33) lbs Chlorine = 4x10e-6 x 3000 x 8.33 lbs Chlorine = 0.09996 or 0.09996 lb x 454grams/lb = 45.38 grams 4ppm of Chlorine in a 3000 gallon pool is: 0.09996 lbs which is about 45.38 grams
I would not shock the pool unless you have problems like the water is getting cloudy or worse if it starts to turn green. Realistically, if nobody is urinating in the pool or unless you have extremely large bather loads shocking is not required. Before shocking make sure to test the pH and adjust it to 7.2-7.4. Then make sure there is adequate chlorine in the pool (1 -3PPM). IF you still require shock, buy…
